Officer cadets ‘excited’ to guard Tel Aviv hotspots

Hundreds of armed IDF soldiers are now standing guard at some of Tel Aviv’s most popular shopping destinations to beef up the police presence.

Tel Aviv’s police department received 100 soldiers, most officer cadets, who will assist police in patrol of public spaces, such as the Dizengoff Center mall and the outdoor Carmel Market, Channel 2 reported.

According to the station, the soldiers appeared excited for their new mission, particularly because they got to exchange the remote desert landscape of the officer’s training school — near Mitzpe Ramon in the Negev Desert — for the urban hustle-and-bustle of central Tel Aviv.
